Poured into a Maudite tulip glass. The beer is pretty cloudy, pretty much an opaque pale ruby-orange color, with a giant thick off-white head, and some decent lacing.
Aroma is a bit musky, dominated by yeast and very ripe fruit.
I'm probably drinking this a bit colder than recommended, but still, this beer is delicious. The yeast flavor is as Belgian as it gets, but not too overpowering. A little bit musky, with noticeable suggestions of dried fruit, especially dried apricots - enough that if someone were to ask me "What's Maudite like?" my answer would immediately be "apricots." Some tangy citrus qualities too. No really overt hop flavor to speak of. Very slightly phenolic, and barely any hint of alcohol sting in the flavor... it's fairly well masked, but leaves a nice warm feeling in the chest.
Spritzy, highly-carbonated, but the mouthfeel is a little too drying, which does take away a bit.
For drinkability... well, I sure won't have a problem finishing this glass, but I think one is enough... not that I'd turn down two. That description deserves a good 4, in my awesome opinion.
I would love to bring this to a classy party/gathering/dinner instead of bringing wine. I think it'd pair well with sharp cheese and dried fruits, particularly.
About $10 a four-pack
